Escape From 'The New Normal'?

Very true. In fact they had Americans and many people in the world in the perfect place for launching the Pandemic Simulation, because everyone was too busy and wrapped up with their lives to pay attention to the conflicting stories, the holes in every argument and everyone was too busy and short-sighted to do their own research.

For one, I knew the whole thing was fake from the beginning because for anyone who watched all the last pandemic simulations, the Mainstream Media used the same rhetoric and statements / contradictions that they did with the Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Mad Cow Disease, Ebola, Zika, etc.

Plus they love always saying why "Infections might really be much higher than are really being reported, Here's why..."

I remember they were saying these things about China in the beginning too, so the moment I started hearing that, I knew COVID-19 was a farce.

All the Businesses which shut down to begin with are cowardly and stupid. I would've never done it, even if we were in an actual pandemic.

I believe the USA will be in an even more difficult position for businesses to create their own reopening agendas with others, because the population is cowardly, weak, untrusting and very atomized. I mean there still isn't even large scale protests of the lockdowns on the streets, like there are in Europe.

I believe 2021 is the year of people breaking down. You will see people break apart in the most unimaginable ways, because they bought into a lie all over the last year and cannot come to terms or grasp that they've been had, and thought they were doing all the right things.

I can't wait for the time to come when we can start shaming these cowards in public:

"So hey, uh so much for those Grocery workers of yours being Heroes" while laughing in their face.

"So uh, hey what about that 2 week lockdown? It sure has been a long 2 weeks!" (I plan on starting this March 13th)

:D :D :D

As cathartic as that would be in concept, I don’t think we’ll ever get to the point that everyone comes to their senses and will be ashamed of their belief in anything. Based upon my own personal experience, must people are too daft to come to that realization and will just continue believing what they are told by Dr. Fauci et al indefinitely, even as their lives deteriorate.

After all, these are the people who have bought into the global warming hoax for decades. It gets hotter because climate change, then colder because climate change, it hasn’t changed because climate change, bad storm season because climate change, mild storm season because climate change, and on and on.

I’ve come to terms that we are going to be living in The Twilight Zone indefinitely, at least until it turns into some even more sinister left wing fantasy. Most people have scales over their eyes as the Bible describes. I’m just trying to plant myself firmly on the rock to weather that storm.

Tomorrow I am attempting to escape the new normal again, am nervous as usual. Crossing some borders. I have had 2 further covid tests in the last few days, both returning negative, which brings my total tests now up to 6. Actually, the through-the-mouth one seems to be the standard here and it is not that bad, it's the nose one which can be truly horrible. Kind of happy not to have caught it yet but won't be surprised if it happens. So all my non-mask wearing outdoors still didn't cause me catch it, so surprising for something that contagious..

Not done with the paperwork, have already hit some miserable roadblock where I had to cancel an overnight stop, forfeit a deposit and reroute the trip. Some of the migrants who have been imported into Europe come from dictatorships, and are accustomed to that kind of government, so if there is a quiet attempt to install a dictatorship in the West, which there probably is, then these people are certainly aiding and abetting it.

You have to really need to or want to travel at the moment. Actually, I am doing everything right but am still nervous, but since the crisis began I have only ever been delayed by covid but never stopped in my tracks. In my whole life I have crossed a lot of borders, and only ever twice suffered really unpleasant incidents, the one being an interrogation triggered by a false positive in a luggage scan, the other was due to a stamp being missing in a passport in a former eastern block country which again triggered an hour or so of misery. Neither were in covid times, both long in the past.

It takes certain personal skills to negotiate the new normal and I hope that we go back to the old normal as they are basically the skills people needed to survive under socialism and it is a step backwards rather than forwards to have to be nurturing and cultivating those skills.

I just checked and the first border just needs a PCR negative test taken within 72 hours, and it will be under 48 hours by the point they see it which is good.

The new normal is a nightmare. It has completely wreaked havoc on at least my life and I suppose I reached a point of becoming more aggressive towards it as too many things in life were starting to go down the toilet. A lot of lost time, and I know that there are people who are even worse hit.

If it works out tomorrow, I will post again. If it is a mild failure will also post. If I don't write anything in this thread for many days then it means it was a miserable disaster which I am keeping to myself until the pain of it passes.

No arguments with that, and having to get a test does add some stress and hassle, but it's not that bad...

In fact, they want to make travel seems like so problematic that people simply don't.

I might be tempting fate, but I've traveled a few times recently, and nothing has been a big deal. PCR test was no big deal (and they barely checked the certificate), I make a point of not checking what the quarantine regs are locally, so if I happen to be caught on the street I can play 'oops, silly me! I thought I'd come from a green zone. I'm soooo sorry!'

Same goes for mask wearing... I never wear a mask, and I guess I have at least one pass (unless I get stopped by a real jobsworth POS).

And most important, when I left the UK (back in March last year) no-one asked what my reason was for travelling. No one I know was asked. It's bulls[earmuffs].

I bet they can't legally stop people from leaving the country (unless its a proportionate response to protect public health, which any judge not down with the pedos knows it's not).

Don't fan the flames of paranoia bro.

Well if the Spaniards allow this they are officially the most cucked nation in Europe.

Maybe they are going " back" to their roots when native iberians and celts were conquered and latinised by romans and when were conquered by Arabs and Moors in 1 year and kept under control for several centuries.

But than again, from Iberia did come plenty of roman auxiliaries and legionnaires, reconquista and the famous conquistadores.

Are these guys the descendants of Herman Cortes and Franco?

Who knows...

I cannot find anything in the Spanish press to back this up but it is being reported in a couple of Expat news sites in Spain, both of which are clickbait unreliable.

I don't believe they would do this.

Floating it perhaps.

The notion that if you are a 'vaccine denier' that refuses, and then catches and passes on Covid, you are liable financially & legally.

Another path towards criminalising the non compliant.

Galicia and the North were never conquered by the Moors tbf.

Most conquistadores came from the South as well, so likely if you scratched around in their DNA it wasn't pure Visigoth stock...

I am from northwestern Spain, and I can confirm that it is true. The law has been passed this week. The regional government has a huge majority (42 of 75 seats). The "conservative" party of this region is probably the most tyrannical from all parties in Spain. You can't even leave you town right now if you don't have a permission (work, going to the hospital etc). Everything is closed right now, except supermarkets and small shops with restrictions (they had close at 6 until last week) . All "big" cities are closed from late October, except Christmas, new year and 6th of January. Some restrictions are going to be removed this Friday, but this is a fucking nightmare. I can't believe the level of insanity we have reached. Believe me, Spain is absolutely lost. Much worse than Sweden, Germany or other countries that are typically used as examples in the anglosphere.

That is sad to hear.

Were there no protests?

I'm pretty sure there would be riots in Germany if they tried that.

Arabs took over all Iberia besides a 5% of territory in the north which was a small piece of land anyway.

It was mostly the fault of Visigoths who got defeated easily. They never had much genetic impact in Iberia anyway.

Anyway, I am not a medic but there is some truth in these new variants of this virus. Not everything is made up, somethings are true .

Anyway, this is more than insane and a new dictatorship established and its first proof of how manageable it would be is in Spain.

Ireland the same.

I think such measures would never be applied in Eastern Europe or Balkans .
 
I'm sat in Ukraine right now, which is open to 22, but one step away from being declared a red zone (all closed, take away only)... so it could go dystopian overnight at anytime. Pretty good if your plan is to send people crazy with uncertainty... but bad for everything else, so I'm planning to fly to Estonia or Serbia tomorrow to 'get inside the wheel' (i.e. hunker down and prep for the inevitable).

Tired of cold weather, but otherwise Tallinn has some personal pros, plus of Ukraine (Kiev) and Minsk it was the coolest... which bodes well for longer term. What I mean is even though masks hit 99% overnight with a stunning level of compliance, I never wore a mask, never got stopped and never got refused service (with the exception of the bank, ironically, where they insisted I cover my face).

I reckon blackmarket vax passes will be real hard to get. They've already rolled out a 'trial' digital vax passport for Estonia. The go is you have to get your poison from a licenced dealer... so not just any doctor. And it's a fair bet the consequences for the licenced doc taking bribes will be severe, plus maybe they'll mandate an observer, cameras in the room etc.

So I want to get somewhere cheap and corrupt, where I can grease locals to turn a blind eye, and I want to be somewhere I'd want to stay long term, as travels gonna be out (probably).

If I can bribe the source, great, but I'm planning for the worst.

So Serbia wins?
 
Update from Spain regarding the Galicia region. So it seems, much to my surprise, it's the PP (the purported 'conservatives') in Galicia who are pushing for obligatory inoculations:


Here's the translation of the key passage in the article, the rest is just linguistic mumbo jumbo and legalese:

In Spain there has been scant controversy about the voluntary nature of the vaccine against COVIC. At first then Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, assured that the obligation could be studied if necessary to reach wide vaccination coverage. But this possibility was soon discarded. And the growing acceptance seemed to rule out this option: eight out of ten Spaniards are prepared to get inoculated as soon as possible.
But on Tuesday Galicia went off script. Its Parliament, with the absolute majority of the PP of Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has approved a reform in the Autonomous Health Law that allows sanctioning people who unjustifiably refuse to be vaccinated against the covid and against possible future viruses with fines of between 1,000 and 600,000 euros.

Now just based on personal experience I seriously doubt these statistics that eight out of ten Spaniards would be eager to get jabbed. Keep in mind that El País is a notorious leftist propaganda outlet, and any stats they peddle are probably heavily manipulated to serve their communist agenda.

My guess would be somewhere around half of the population would get the jab. It's not that Spaniards are more gullible than the rest of the Europeans or Americans but the main problem here is that the entire media landscape is heavily leaning toward the extreme left. The transformation you are seeing in the U.S. right now is what has been in place here in Spain for the past decade or more. From the top of my head I would not be able to point you toward a single major conservative news outlet or TV channel. Sure there are small dissident sites and VOX is gradually building a following but access to alternative Spanish language information is little to none.

At least judging by the article it seems that the PP may be able to pass this bill in Galicia which effectively would make it statewide law. Scary indeed and IMO a direct affront to basic human rights. Of course there will be attempts to sue them in court but you know how that goes. You'll be lucky if you get a court date five years from now and by then you may already be dead or physically disabled from the long term side effects of this experimental gene therapy.

This is particularly worrisome for me personally as I will require surgery next month and I am already forced to pass a PCR test prior to the operation. I am stating to wonder how long it'll take until they'll refuse you unless you agree to be inoculated. It's a slippery slope and we seem to be picking up steam.

Post surgery and assuming everything works out as planned (God willing) I am very much looking forward to leaving Spain, even only for a few years. Where to go however is another question.

It's a little better down here in the South it seems but the situation is far from normal. If I didn't have to have surgery next month I would be packing right now - today! I have never ever seen an entire nation collectively abandon their human rights and jump through every single hoop that is put in front of them by a tyrannical government. There appears to be no democratic consciousness here in Spain, the country truly is lost.

0 protests. Just a few from bar owners, hotels, restaurants, etc. Anyway, really weak and with no influence at all.
There HAVE been protests and riots all over the place in Spain recently but they are barely being reported. See above what I mentioned about the Spanish media landscape. If you think it's uniquely bad in the U.S. right now (and getting worse) think again. The Communists are in complete control of the Spanish media, there is no dissent. What some people call 'conservative' here in Spain would be considered moderate to left in other countries. The Overton is so skewed in this country that radical ideas quickly slide from 'unthinkable' to 'widely accepted'. Honestly at this point I deeply regret having moved here as it's hugely disappointing.

I previously lived in Spain for two years, I remember the Spaniards used to protest about everything from left to right. Each spring there was a big protest every week in Madrid. I find it odd if they aren't protesting anymore, but from what I hear, there are several protests against the restrictions, they just don't get attention in the news.

Visited Galicia several times - aside from the city Vigo, the population in the Galician community seemed to be very old and not very rebellious, so there probably won't be much resistance to the crazy law there. If they pass a similar law in the community of Madrid, I could definitely see some serious riots happening.
